Southern China's city of Shenzhen is planning to increase the number of charging stations for electric vehicles. This is in a move to speed up development of the city's supporting facilities for green cars.

Currently, there are five charging stations in Shenzhen. Each has six charging facilities. The municipal government plans to increase the number to almost 13-thousand by 2012. It also aims to push the total number of new energy cars to 100-thousand units by 2015. The city-based electric car giant, BYD, welcomes the move, saying its strong sales will be boosted further.

Zhang Yufeng, PR of BYD Company Ltd. said "Our sales are quite good currently, with increasing orders for electric cars. I believe the municipal government's move will definitely help promote popularization of electric cars. It's very timely."
